I’m baaaaack!

Okay, so it probably appears as though I disappeared off the face of the earth, but that really isn’t the case. The past couple months were a struggle to put it lightly, it’s amazing what being laid off can do to a person. I had no idea it would be such a roller coaster.  Things are definitely falling back into place, but I have this fear bottled up inside that it’s just all going to crumble beneath me. It’s like I’m too afraid to fall into the lay-z boy of comfort, in fear that something detrimental is going to come a long and shake my boat again, so I just tiptoe on the edge.

I know it’s irrational. I know that it’s pathetic. I know that I need to just live life.

but how?

How can I when I’m terrified that things are going to come and rock the boat my wife and I are so steadily climbing back into. I mean I don’t think we’ve been in this good of a place in a long time, maybe that is what scares the hell out of me.

Domestic.

We put up our tree this weekend. It’s a bit of a Charlie Brown tree, but we LOVE it, and it smells sooooo good. To view the pictures, just click on them. Sorry they are twisted, I’m just now figuring this out, bare w/ me.

Repetative

So, it’s been quite sometime since my last post. I’m a slacker I’ll admit it! However, there has been a lot going on in my little world. Let me run it down for you work-julie’sgraduation-thanksgiving-juliesmomvisiting-triptocalifornia-work-familystuff-birthdays-work-school-schoolfinals-work. Get it? Got it? Good. I don’t feel so guilty for no blogging now. However, while on my trip to California my beloved Aunt, (there is no sarcasm in beloved, she really is my favorite) frequently informed me of my need to diet. Gee thanks Aunt B! But, I’m not putting her down. She is absolutely 100% correct. I do need to diet! So, here is my 3rd, and FINAL attempt at a healthier me. If I don’t succeed well, I’ll just swell into a balloon, and bust.

Last night was my first real shot at it. So I grabbed my purse, and headed towards Win-co. I started throwing anything healthy, and delicious into the cart. I have all sorts off goodness to make delicious healthy dinners with, and enough Lean Cuisines to last me till January.

So, as repetative, as that feels on this blog, it’s the reality, I’m sticking to it. I need to for the sake of me, myself, and I.  If you really find my diet battle intriguing you are more than welcome to read my food journal, but trust me it’s going to be pretty lame. However, I will appreciate your support!

Domesticated?

Lately, I have been slacking on my blogging, but here I am back in action. I’ll start w/ a few updates. I have recently started doing a couple things to better myself, drink more water, walk, etc. I wouldn’t call it a diet at all just a few things to help myself out.

I’ve been finding my inner homemakerness. Updates to come.
